On the knitting front.

My poor little blog has been neglected as of late. School work has had me quite busy these past couple of weeks. Luckily though, over the next three weeks I have 5 days off school due to all the public holidays and sports carnivals which I can't attend because I still don't have enough energy to participate.

Apart from all the school work, it has been a so great to come home (and after doing my homework and having dinner) and sit and knit. I have been working on a couple of accessories for the cold months ahead.

The Madeleine Press scarf is coming along nicely but the cable panel ate all of my yarn! All five balls! I have 4 more balls of Jaeger Extra Fine Merino Aran coming which should arrive on Friday so I will be able to complete the frill part.

I also started this cute cabled hat that was is inspired by the cute little hats ones decked out on all the Burberry models in their latest collection. I still need to knit the back brim.
